BYOC ~ on Saturday

It's FRIDAY so that means it's BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy! Brought to you by the one and only Drazil! We answer a couple of questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy and paste and answer in your own blogs if you'd like!! ENJOY!!
  1. Describe the structure you live in. (apartment, condo, house, mansion, cardboard box?)
    House. It's one story, about 1400 square feet. Its small and modest, not what you would expect in the land of McMansions of the Hamptons ~ but I love every inch of this house.  We have lived here for over 10 years and the dogs are kind enough to let us stay.  Favorite feature of the house...Doggy door and fenced in yard... oh, and my kitchen!

  2. Describe the city you live in. (population, main attractions)
    I live in East Hampton NY the end of Long Island.  It used to be a fishing and farming community but it really is a resort area now that attracts celebs and billionaires so its lost a lot of the charm that brought them here in the first place.  In the summer I would guess the population is over 35,000 and in the winter I would say about 10,000 but, I'm no census taker.  Most of the jobs are recreation/tourism related and a lot of the "regular" people leave here in the winter too to follow the jobs south.

  3. Why do you live in the town you live in? (job, to get away from a different town, family, schools?)
    I live here because my husband's job is here and we both grew up in the area.  We are lucky enough to have our house ~ got it before the "Boom" and you cant beat the natural beauty of the beaches and trails ~ especially off season when you have it to yourself!

  4. What’s the view like from your backyard?
    Woods ~ and deer and turkeys 

  5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.
    In real life, Things have been really good. Scale moving south, Got my new bike this week! And I think I'll be getting paid soon. :) So I'm hoping that makes for a good Christmas.  Oh and going to NYC this week for a few days to see the lights and bum around the village and dine at some killer restaurants!

    In blogland, I've been reading and commenting a ton and been pretty good about blogging ~ It really keeps me on track and I am loving all the support from you guys! I also am a youtube stalker and am inspired by bandedwendy and newtoy4KT ~ love those ladies oh and Sarahwillbeskinny too
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm off to work and hoping to get a MTB in or a run before the pain of Boot Camp Last night sets in!


  1. I'm kind of becoming a youtube stalker too!

  2. Ooh, that reminds me, I need to go watch kt's new video! :)

  3. oh that's a fun little survey! I am amazed by people who live where they grew up, I think it means you have probably done an amazing job of maintaining friends, I couldn't wait to get out of my town
